  4. Murdered toddler was 'happy and carefree'

    Det Supt Ian Hunter at Thames Valley Police has released a statement following the jailing of Angela Whitworth for murdering her daughter.

    Angela Whitworth

    He said: "Sarah was a happy and carefree little girl who had her whole life ahead of her. She died at the hands of the person who should have been protecting her - her own mother. 

    "Angela Whitworth received information which, in her mind, gave her the opinion that she would be unlikely to be able to take Sarah to live in Kenya. 

    "Angela therefore booked herself a business class flight to Nairobi... then killed her daughter before travelling to Heathrow Airport and leaving for Kenya later that day."
